OP2 Structural Sufficiency of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability of shear failure, anchor withdrawal or inadequate distribution of lateral and wind-uplift loads, which could lead to the displacement of wood-frame roof systems under wind-uplift loads.

This is to limit the probability of:

  • compromised structural integrity of the roof,
  • the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration, or
  • an inability to resist expected loads, which could lead to:
    • the excessive movement or deformation of walls, or
    • the excessive deflection or vibration of floors.

This is to limit the probability of:

  • the space being unsuitable for its intended use,
  • compromised operation of windows or doors, or
  • damage to the building.
